How to Ruin a Good Catholic School

“Thanks, but your services are no longer needed. ”  Or, words to that effect.  Here’s a parish school with a devout Catholic principal, loyal to the Faith and the magisterium, who after twenty-five years of excellent service, is given his walking papers. Behind the scenes something very sinister is going on at the Church of St. Saviour in Brooklyn, New York.  Read this report from CNA and you will see how a pastor destroys a school.  Never mind the parents and the children, the non-inclusive principal must be gotten rid of.  I am sickened by this story.  May the tough and faithful Brooklynites succeed in stopping this outrageous injustice.

CNA reports: Brooklyn, N.Y., Jul 29, 2009 / 10:54 am (CNA).- Fr. Daniel Murphy’s decision to replace a Brooklyn school’s long-time principal has infuriated parishioners who not only believe he was unjustly let go, but are also concerned that under new leadership, the school will be converted into a charter school.

Furious parishioners at the Church of St. Saviour in Brooklyn, New York told CNA that they began to think something was amiss last April when the parish’s pastor, Father Daniel Murphy, decided not to renew James Flanagan’s contract and replaced him with pastoral parish council member, Maura Lorenzen.  Read full CNA article here.
